Puzzle Heel

Source Ultimate Intrigue pg. 234
Price varies; Weight
Category Adventuring Gear


Used as a replacement for the heel and sole of a shoe or boot, a puzzle heel can be used to secret away items so you can retrieve them when needed. To open the small compartment inside a puzzle heel, you must press, turn, and twist the heel and sole in a particular pattern. The increased complexity of a puzzle heel grants a circumstance bonus on Sleight of Hand checks to conceal items, depending on the complexity of the opening process. Opening the heel without knowing the sequence requires a successful Disable Device check. A puzzle heel compartment is roughly 5 cubic inches in volume.
